Timeless Stripes, vibrant waves, two colors to create balance with many outfits - this shawl is destined to become one of your favorite shawls to crochet and wear. 

The Mainsail shawl is a triangular shawl worked from one corner to the opposite side. Its stitch pattern features many relaxing and repetitive ribbing rows, which creates a soft and squishy fabric. To keep you interested, the repetition is balanced with quick color changes in the stripe sections interspersed with billowing rows of the wave stitch pattern.
